How did you become interested in permaculture?

I am interested in taking another PDC course and offering another course at our Ashram.

If you have taken a Permaculture Design Course, who was your was your teacher and what year did you receive your certification?

We are applying some permaculture designs to our garden. We have plans for solar heating and hot water; a grey water system; etc. We have done workshops with Julia and Charles Yelton and PDC with Toby Hemenway and Larry Santoyo.

How are you currently applying the permaculture principles in your life? (Care of people and the earth, fair distribution of surplus, promotion of diversity, cooperation, integration, zero waste, etc.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture)

Yes! I am part of a Yoga Peace community and want to create an ecovillage around it. Looking for people who love nature, gardening, green building and Yoga to help make it happen.

What are some of your favorite permaculture resources? (Books, videos, websites, etc.)

Sponsoring interns to be part of the Yoga Ranch gardens and help realize the our Permaculture goals. We hope to host Green Phoenix permaculture courses and workshops.

What Srinivasan is saying about this Meetup Group

I was impressed by how engaged with living the permaculture philosophy everyone is. It would be good to work on some projects together if people can free the time from their busy schedules.
